METABOLIC TESTING

removing the guess work

Metabolic testing using a portable PNOE breath analyser provides me with highly accurate data regarding your unique physiology & metabolism, such as how many calories you require each day.  This allows for the creation of individualised nutrition strategies & recommendations completely tailored to you to help you perform at your best & achieve your fitness or body compostition goals. Metabolic testing is suitable for all levels of athletes or individuals.

Find out more information on how to book in for metabolic testing below.

Resting metabolic rate Test

A Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test helps accurately determine the amount of energy (calories) your body burns at complete rest. This allows for the allocation of daily calorie targets for training & rest days to help you fuel optimally & achieve your body compostition goals. 

An RMR test also provides data on your metabolic efficiency which shows how much your body relies on fuel sources such as carbohydrates & fats. If an individual is heavily reliant on carbohydrates for fuel at rest this can lead to increased fuel store depletion which can have implications on exercise performance & overall endurance.

Ramp test

A ramp test measures your aerobic fitness levels (the size of your engine) & your fat/carbohydrate usage during exercise. 

The data I gather allows me to pinpoint your heart rate training zones, VO2 max & your aerobic/anaerobic thresholds. This helps establish the efficiency of your engine & aids the creation of individualised fuelling strategies. The results from a ramp test can be used to plan training strategies to help you become a fitter, faster & more efficient athlete.

Follow Up Analysis

After testing we will sit down & go through the data together. This provides an opportunity for me to give you recommendations & feedback. During this time you can ask me any questions you may have about your results.

Alongside this you’ll receive a PDF report the following day which includes a breakdown of your results which includes; personalised calorie targets, cardiovascular fitness score, fat burning efficiency, maximal fat oxidation, heart rate training zones & threshold values.
